"I already had a master’s degree in English and I was looking for a master’s programme that would suit me to give me adequate training in international business and that would enable me to be quickly on the job market. Each master programme is designed to deliver specific training in a given field while also giving the necessary bases in finance, marketing, human resources management… regardless of your specialisation.
